Welcome to October at Slow Sunday Stitching here at Kathy's Quilts! Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee (or maybe a pumpkin spice latte) and join us to celebrate the experience of slowly stitching your way through life!
And here is the finished piece!
Finished size: 6.25" x 4.25"
It is stitched on a 14 count piece of old aida cloth that I tea dyed. I love it so much! I loved stitching the bird and completed it first in August. Although the strawberry was intense stitching (I would call it "full coverage") I really love how it turned out! So now I don't know what to do with this. Should I make it into a mini quilt, or a stuffed pillow, or a framed stitchery? You can see Helen D's finish on this flosstube episode at about the 3 minute mark.
There are similar patterns from October House Fibre Arts called Honey Faire which is a bee hive, and a new pattern called Pumpkin Faire was just released. Anyway, I am done with Strawberry Faire, so if you would like to be in a draw to win my gently used pattern, please let me know in the comments today and I'll draw the winner's name next Sunday.
My new start for October will be a freebie from Blue Ribbon Designs called Acorns and Owls. (Click on "charts, patterns, designs" and when the drop down menu appears, click on "free charts") But first I will try to finish the squirrel sampler I showed last week.
What are you creating by hand this week?
